It was also so interesting to hear the stories of how many of these people end up at the homeless shelter. They are families just like everyone else who through a series of circumstances find themselves needing extraordinary help. For many the circumstances were not anything they could have avoided. May we be like the Christians in Acts and give generously of ourselves to love and help those who are helpless.
On another note, as for Chris, there is no news right now. We are waiting to hear back from San Antonio about the other clinical trial we hope he qualifies for. There is no doubt, waiting is very hard, but I know we just need to be still and wait upon the Lord. Look to Him and know He has everything in His capable hands.
"I lift my eyes up to the hills, where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth" Psalm 121:1-2

Tomorrow Chris will go with Emily's father to pick her up from Westmont, he is very excited for that and being able to spend time together over the next week. A trip to Palm Desert is hopefully in the plans also. It is also his 20th birthday on Monday, so another thing to celebrate.
Chris also talked with Oxy today and is hoping to begin working with them on the 23rd of March. This would be wonderful for Chris, he loves working there and it will help him keep busy doing things he is so good at.
Well thanks for all the prayers, I know they are moving mountains. May they move the mountain of the drug company to have favor for Chris to do their treatment.

John used to always say we can not ride the roller coaster, that we must stay focused on the Lord and that He is steadfast, our Rock. I have to admit I have failed over the last week, I hope to do better. Several times I have heard the words, "be still and know that I am God". Lord help me be still, especially in my mind.
Well, just got the call from the guys in San Antonio.
Looks like the Reolysin (virus) trial is out of the picture. Because of the previous brain tumor I had, I don't qualify for that trial.
I've been added the the waiting list for another trial (option two a few posts ago). This is a growth inhibitor study. Unfortunately, I won't be able to start treatment for about four weeks.
I'm not sure what God is doing here, but we're going to continue to have faith in Him and trust that He has a greater plan for all this, and somehow it's all going to work out for His good.
On the bright side, I'll be in town for Emily's spring break!

Chris is very bummed, but I know he will get his good attitude back. It is just hard, everything is such an overwhelming challenge. So we ask for your prayers that the drug company for the treatment will give its approval, that we will have the favor of God. It is so hard when things appear to be in the hands of other people. But they really are in the hands of God and we will trust for his favor and provision.

You can read Chris's blog to see what how the visit to CTRC went at Two Doors .
We thank everyone who has been praying for us. Please don't stop...those prayers are what sustain us through our Lord Jesus.
